June 2012 JolieBox: 1st Birthday Limited Edition Box!

Well Ello my Hunnies. Boy have I missed you and missed blogging too. I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend. Today is Friday the 13th, but I hope that you all have a wonderful not awful day. In today's post I want to show you the products I received in my June 2012 JolieBox. This box is limited edition to celebrate JolieBox's 1st birthday.

I love this fun and pretty anniversary box. I think it definitely represents the brand well. In this edition of JOLIEMAG contents include the hottest beauty products in France right now, a step-by-step guide to applying a red lip, favourite JolieBox products and much more.

Inside the top and bottom lids of the box.

Just how cute are the little birds helping her paint her nails and apply her make-up.

Left To Right:

Elysambre Natural Lipstick (217201 Glossy Red Brown), £9.03 for the next 11 days, usually £11.29 for 3.5g

I do like this shade of lipstick. It is a berry red shade with a brown undertone. It looks very matte in the tube, but when I swatched it on my hand it felt quite smooth so I think I might like it as I can find matte lipsticks quite drying on my already very dry lips. This matte lipstick contains pearl and gloss which is what I think will hopefully help in keeping my lips moisturised. This has a small pop off lid. The lipstick itself has the typical lipstick scent, but it's not at all unpleasant. This is smaller than most of my lipsticks, but on my information card it states this is full size.

Institut Esthederm UV inCellium Spray, £42.50 for 150ml

This is a spray bottle as titled above. This has a soft, subtle scent like suncream as essentially that's what it is. You can also use this 7 days prior to sun exposure to protect your skin. Good if it works in preparation for a holiday I guess, but it's way expensive. I know it's meant to help prolong the length of your natural tan, but I would not pay this price. I could have done with this last week when I got very sun burnt though. Ironic really, ha ha.

L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream, £29.00 for 50ml

This is meant to be ideal for dry to normal skin and as mine is so dry hopefully this will work well for me. This feels very smooth and has a very natural, subtle scent. Almost like cucumber. This is a new product.

Yon-Ka Pamplemousse Protective and Vitalizing Cream Normal to Oily Skin, Price unknown

I'm sorry I can't tell you the price of this product as it doesn't say on my information card or on the Yon-Ka & JolieBox websites. This cream feels nice and has quite a zesty scent. This is not for my skin type, but I didn't fill in my beauty profile as I have had a lot of trouble with payment of my JolieBox's which I will explain later on in this post. I would have liked to try the cream meant for dry skin as a preference. The tube of this cream I have is 50ml which I'm not sure if is full size? I am not sure why I would be sent two face creams in the same box?

JolieBox Nail File, Free

This is a cute little extra that I will use. There are also a few discount codes in this box which is great. 

Now onto the reason I will no longer be purchasing JolieBox's. Every month for the past few month's there has been some sort of problem with paying for my boxes. With my June box JolieBox could not rectify the problem. I received a new bank card a while ago, but once that had been updated on my details that payment went through, but for my June box this was not the case. I updated my GlossyBox bank card details and those boxes have been coming through fine so I have no idea what's going on. I don't really want to open a new bank card simply to pay for my JolieBox's and so this will be my last box. JolieBox very kindly sent me this June box for free due to the inconvenience of having this issue each month and I really appreciate it. I have really enjoyed this year with JolieBox and I hope they have another successful year. Happy 1st Birthday JolieBox! I will miss you :(
